“Caples Crest is a summer service road leading to the east side of Kirkwood Resort.”
— Eric Ashley
Caples Crest begins at the bottom of its namesake lift near the picnic tables and heads north before looping back to the top of the lift. The grade is quite flat at first and then steepens as the road climbs to the halfway point. Here, the grade briefly levels before the final climb to the top. It isn't too overwhelming, but riders will feel the steady climbs.
The road starts from Snowkirk
and intersects with the following on its way to the top: Lower Corral
, Red Cliffs, Whiskey
Shots, Iron Horse, and Vista
